From the Organiser I opened a file in the Editor, made the necessary changes and saved it over the original - which is my usual practice. It wouldn't let me this so eventually I saved it under a slightly different name and deleted the original from the Organiser.
I then continued to look through the photos and decided to delete one which was fuzzy - but the Organiser wouldn't allow me to do it with this error message 'Analysis is Currently Running on selected media. Please try again after some time.'. What Analysis? I've been using the organiser in its various incarnations since 2005 and never before been prevented from deleting a photo.
Any idea what is going on? Have I clicked something in error? As far as I know I haven't allowed the Organiser to do anything automatically as I prefer to have complete control of my photos.
Which Elements version? The general rule is that by default all automatic analysis options are enabled. The first thing I do after installing is to set the preferences and to disable everything automatic.
PSE 2020 which I installed shortly after it was published last year. This is the first time I've come up with a problem.
I'll have a look at Preferences to see if I can find it.
Edit to say thanks and that I found it and removed two ticks. Is there anything else which should be unticked?
If you don't have noticeable slowness issues, that's enough. Face recognition requires a lot of computer and RAM power. I am stuck away from Paris with only a low specs computer (not bad to be in the country ) so I have disabled anything automatic, since I don't care for face recognition.
